freud's last session | two lewises on stage

In FREUD'S LAST SESSION, Sigmund Freud calls CS Lewis in for a meeting where they unpack the mysteries (or lack thereof) of the universe.  For our two actors, Evan Frayne and Ron Reed, this isn't their first time exploring the world of CS Lewis!  Both Ron and Evan have played Lewis in past productions - Ron in his Jessie Award-nominated role in SHADOWLANDS and Evan in THE GREAT DIVORCE.  Here's some shots from their past turns as Clive Staples Lewis.

subway station of the cross book | ins choi

Toronto based actor Ins Choi, recently seen in PT's guest production SUBWAY STATIONS OF THE CROSS has released a book based on his acclaimed one-man show. 


Inspired by a real-life encounter with a homeless man, award-winning playwright Ins Choi (Kim’s Convenience) has originated an astounding work of artistry and imagination in these fourteen spoken-word poems and songs that make up Subway Stations of the Cross. Part public disturbance, part performance artist, and part modern-day prophet, Ins Choi embodies the form of a nameless vagabond who is both beggar and seer. He creates a rich tapestry of the profane and the sacred, the humorous and the banal, the contemptuous and the poignant in both poetry and lyric. It is a holy communion for the urban soul. This relevant and challenging show is captured here in book form with illustrations of subway drawings by Guno Park, whose work has been featured internationally.
